Quotations; Booking a Table
'Luigi, the restaurant manager, said to me once that he keeps that particular table for the Queen of Norway or the Queen of Denmark. One night the Queen of Norway was eating at this table and the Queen of Denmark walked in. she looked at the table, she looked at the Queen of Norway, she looked at Luigi and without a word she walked out' Egon Ronay
'You don't stand a chance if you say "Give me your best table", first of all they'll say they don't have one, then say you can't book it. My advice would be to go to the Restaurant early, then if you don't like your table, simply ask to be moved. Go to drama school, get the lead role in several Hollywood movies. Then phone and ask for the best table'. Egon Ronay
